Like Beit Al-Mamlouka, Dar al-Yasmin is an old Damascus mansion that has been converted into a boutique hotel. Dar al-Yasmin is much more reasonably priced, and although not as luxurious, is still a pleasant place to stay if you are looking for a small hotel in the heart of the old city. I did not stay here, but stopped by to take a look. The hotel also has a restaurant and a hammam (massage and sauna). It is located off Bab Touma street, behind the Latin (Franciscan) Church, in the Christian Quarter. The hotel's website is nicely designed with many pictures of the hotel.
This small hotel is in the old town of Damascus, near the most interesting sites. The room are larges and very confortables. The service is good and the breakfast is great! According to me is one of the best in Syria. The hotel have no restaurant, but is near to the best ones!
